Abstract


The relationship between financial development and economic growth remains a fundamental issue in the economics and finance literature. This paper examines this relationship by introducing institutional variables (law and order, corruption, external conflicts, socioeconomic conditions, investment profile and democratic accountability) of 13 Middle East and North African (MENA) countries over the 1990-2008 period using the generalized method of moments (GMM) system approach. This is what actually makes the outstanding aspect of this study. In fact, the empirical analysis reports the following results: when we use different measures of financial development and institutions as separate explanatory variables, most of the reported coefficients of liquid liabilities and central bank assets are positive and not significant, except for private credit, coefficients are negative and important. Some coefficients of institutional variables are positive and significant. Such results have been performed by using interaction between financial development and institutions. We find that most coefficients have a positive and insignificant impact on economic growth, except for democratic accountability, external conflicts and socioeconomic conditions when central bank assets is used like a proxy of financial development, coefficients are positive and significant.

PUBLICATION ETHICS

For a peer-reviewed journal, the publication of articles plays an essential role in the development of a coherent network of knowledge. It is, therefore, essential that all publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers, in the process of publishing the journals, conduct themselves in accordance with the highest level of professional ethics and standards. The publisher is dedicated to supporting the vast efforts of the editors, the academic contributions of authors, and the respected volunteer work undertaken by reviewers. The publisher is also responsible for ensuring that the publication system works smoothly, and that ethical guidelines are applied to assist the editor, author, and reviewer in performing their ethical duties.

The editor has the following responsibilities:

1.The editor should acknowledge receipt of submitted manuscripts within two working days of receipt and ensure an efficient, fair, and timely review process.
2.The editor should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
3.The editor should recuse himself or herself from processing manuscripts if he or she has any conflict of interest with any of the authors or institutions related to the manuscripts.
4.The editor should not disclose the names and other details of the reviewers to a third party without the permission of the reviewers.
5.The editor has the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal.
6.The editor should by no means make any effort to oblige the authors to cite his or her journal either as an implied or explicit condition of accepting their manuscripts for publication.
7.The editor should not use for his or her own research any part of any data or work reported in submitted and as yet unpublished articles.
8.The editor should respond promptly and take reasonable measures when an ethical complaint occurs concerning a submitted manuscript or a published paper, and the editor should immediately contact and consult with the author. In this case, a written formal retraction or correction may also be required.
